Craig "KLC" Lawson (born July 30, 1969), is a rap music producer from the Third Ward of New Orleans, Louisiana. He found fame as a member of No Limit Records' in-house production team, Beats by the Pound. Since leaving the label, he has been a member of the Medicine Men, consisting of much of the same producers as the original Beats by the Pound, as well as some new talent. Along with Mannie Fresh, KLC is arguably one of the most important producers in New Orleans Rap and in Southern Rap. Juelz Santana's appearance on Paul Wall's "I'm Real, What Are You?" is one of the few occasions a New York rapper appeared on a KLC-produced track. KLC has worked with numerous recording artists and is credited for having discovered several prominent rappers, including Fiend, Mystikal and Soulja Slim. Recently, Rakim worked with KLC on a new track in his studios in Baton Rouge. He has also been quoted as saying he is poised to release a new project titled "Alarm Clock: Better Late Than Never."
